Dancing in the Holy
Introduction: Building a vocabulary for the holy.
The Holy: God Creates the Holy; Humanity Rejects the Holy; God Reclaims Humanity (Worship, Scripture, Experience); Humanity Responds (Worship, Scripture, Experience).
Reverence: The outward manifestation of the feeling or attitude of deep respect tinged with awe.
Spontaneous: That which comes from a natural impulse.
Dance: Moving one’s feet or body, or both, rhythmically in a pattern of steps, esp. to the accompaniment of music as an expression of reverence. The question we want to ask is, What inspired the dance?
Point 1: The Spontaneous Dance
(Not learned the steps to the dance)
2 Samuel 6:12-15, 16, 20-23

Point 2: What or Who Inspires Your Dance?
